There are many harmful elements in cigarettes. Because of these elements, it is possible that a woman’s’ ovulation cycle will be disrupted. This could cause her eggs to not be released in a timely manner, making it difficult for her to conceive.

Hormones are also something that can be disrupted by smoking. These hormones can cause the woman to produce eggs that are not healthy, which can make it harder for them to become fertilized. Her body may also become unhealthy and the egg may not be able to implant if it does happen to become fertilized.

Men also can be effected negatively by cigarettes when they are trying to conceive with their partner. They may find that their sperm is not healthy enough to fertilize the egg. It is also possible that smoking will cause the man to have a lower amount of sperm or to have sperm that doesn’t swim well. These are all issues that couples could face if they continue to smoke while they are trying to conceive.
